Healthy Baby encourages early regular prenatal care and promotes and supports healthy outcomes for moms, babies and families.
If you are pregnant, live in Manitoba and have a net family income of less than $32,000 a year, the Manitoba Prenatal Benefit can provide you with a monthly cheque to help you buy healthy foods that you need during pregnancy.
Due to the potential Canada Post disruption, Manitoba Prenatal Benefit cheques for July will not be sent through the mail. Cheques will be available for pick-up at designated distribution centres.
In order to pick up your cheque at the designated site, you will need to show proper identification.
When you come, please bring with you:
1 valid photo ID
2 valid non photo pieces of ID
